Just one of many flower pictures I took at the Bellevue Arboretum, courtesy of Astrid the tour guide. The arboretum and the day warrant their own post, so this is just a tease. (Is that a camellia that had fallen into the water with the cherry blossom petals? It’s certainly something that’s not hardy here in Wisconsin!)
A few other beautiful cherry (and apple) blossoms from that weekend:
Not snow above, just fallen cherry blossoms among the daffodils doing a good imitation. (The snow came the next weekend.)
University of Washington mall. Isn’t it gorgeous with the cherry trees in bloom?
Below, an apple blossom series from an early morning walk on a gorgeous Seattle day.
